    I had a good time, glad I decided to protect myself day1. Why do I always get targeted day1 in minis but absolutely ignored in main phallas? I'll never know.

    That's frustrating that Darian did what he did. Re-reading the PM's, it isn't spelled out that the converted are part of the evil side, but the PM that Micro sent to us made it out that these were full conversions and that the people we converted would be working with us.

    For reference, this is the PM we received after our first successful conversion:
    "Dear Candle, you are now corrupted.

    You had a think about it, and you’ve realised that the world can’t really live without profanity. People would show their anger in other, more inappropriate an violent means. Thus, you now support the use of prpfanity.

    To all intents and purposes you will still appear to be good old Candle, but in reality you are now COCK.

    Your win condition has also been changed – you must now just survive until the end of the game – you of course no longer wish to wite-out the profane.

    If you are seered, vig’d or voted off you will now show up in your new form.

    The BIG 3, who will probably be in touch, have discovered various powers associated with the use of their names. If YOUR new word is used in the thread, it does not confer any advantages. This will sound all very vague, but I'm sure the other profanities will be in touch to discuss things further."

    As you will see, I have changed the last paragraph - the newly converted profanities are part of your team, you now CAN invite them to proboards, etc - but if their word is used in the thread it confers no special power in the same way that the currently discovered special powers does. Also, if all three of you Big 3 is wiped out, the game ends. The new profanities add to your win condition - but do not help you avoid failure.

    I will continue to do all my communication with profanities through you three - and trust you will communicate with the new profanities as necessary. At the moment dagon does not know your identity.

    Great game, and I lived, yay!

    After day two, when I was publicly seered and converted at the same time, I was in a unique position. My win condition changed to bascially a neutral win; all I had to do was survive. It didn't matter with which side I won, as long as I didn't die. I had the guard, seer, and a vanillager, plus the bad guy proboard, all at my disposal. Had I actually been able to log on more than once a day this weekend, I could have totally exploited this quite a bit.

    Alas, hindsight is 20/20. Still a great phalla. God job Micro!

    Ok, so we couldn't do anything to any special unless we happened to have a bunch of people swear that day, the one time we did have enough, maximus used the kill on thetheroo, when I originally planned on using it on Mr D or Vthorn. Super clever.

    Why was there a need to have any further balancing mechanics on top of that? To be honest the baddies in this game were kind of gimped.

    The thing is, if it had gone off correctly everyone in the game other than Law and abotkin would have won that night. And this after the bad words went into the day feeling in a very strong position, expecting The Dagon to be in a good pro-board soon. From what I can tell, Mr. D still wasn't even 100% certain the vig was on the village team, since there were so few other deaths showing up and no proof of conversions.

    I thought it was worth a shot.

    Sorry this has taken so long.

    There were a few competing mechanics going off in the game. Firstly, as rightly surmised earlier, the ‘BIG 3’ (as I’ve taken to calling them) had the power of conversion – but this didn’t completely convert – it merely made them a ‘lesser profanity’ with a neutral, survival, win condition.

    The thinking behind this was that things would play out in a number of ways - depending on who the neutrals sided with at any given time in order to preserve themselves. Looking back through my pm’s I didn’t make it obvious enough that they were neutral to the BIG 3 – the ‘you of course no longer wish to wite-out the profane’ bit was meant to say to the neutrals: ‘you don’t want to die, as you are now profane’, but I buggered up, leading to the BIG 3 trusting the convertees perhaps more than they should have done. In my original pm I did state that they shouldn't be invited to proboards - I then changed my mind after sending out the pms and clarified this in a pm to the BIG 3.

    On the good side there was the typical seer, vig, guard combo.

    I realised that conversion vs one vig and a vote would make for an incredibly slow and boring game, so added in the swearing system.

    Shit, cunt and fuck were all ‘activation words’ for three powers which were Vig, Guard and ‘Open Seer’ (which as you saw seered someone live on the thread). They were RNG assigned to each of the words each day.

    I also had a list of about 25 or 30 ‘active’ profanities – all of which could be ‘activated’. But they didn’t individually give a power, you needed a combination.

    So:

    For the first 5 words on the thread – Overturn the vote to 2nd place
    For first 8 words – One more vig + above
    For first 10 words – Unguardable kill + above
    For first 15 words - Guard all remaining BIG 3 + above

    Someone saying fuck 15 times would not have worked – it had to be 15, or whatever, unique words – so very hard to activate the big ones, but thought the 5 word would be achievable on a regular basis, which would probably also have activated the cunt fuck and shit powers. I was expecting you guys to learn that the words powered things up, but perhaps not quite so quickly – so was expecting lots of death in the first couple of nights, followed by the sudden realisation that you were slowly killing yourselves. But as it was you were all remarkably careful from the off; which I now recognise to be a design flaw on my part.

    The words you were all assigned were for two purposes – firstly to give you all a character of sorts, and to perhaps make you feel a bit more attached, and secondly: if someone said your word (in the first CYAN game I played) and they were on the same side on you, you’d become automatically masoned. As it was, no one did it. On the whole the words were things that I saw whilst sitting at my desk while designing the game, hence the theme of the game on Day 3, or whenever it was.

    With regard to Toxic Toys on Day 2 – his was the 5th word, which activated the vote overturn. As he was in second place, the vote fell to him. By calling someone a ‘Bitch’ he sentenced himself to death. Which I found, frankly, hilarious.

    Where the mechanics fell down were the fact that in the first few days everyone seemed to target themselves – on day 1, VT, the Vig, targeted grundl, the guard. Which was crazy. Also, Mr D got lucky with finding Maximus straight away. Then with the converted Darian turning on the BIG 3 almost straight away (as he was seered straight after the conversion, another lucky hit) things got to the end game pretty quickly. The vanilla words really got lucky a couple of times with the seering, which was crazy really – and without it I think everything would have been much more rewarding for the BIG 3.

    One last thing – bad guys saying bad words had no effect at all, same with convertees – so them swearing all over the place did, literally, nothing. They were just desperately hoping that someone would quote them – as happened when (I think) Magic Man quoted Maximus on Day 2, seriously powering up the profanities – giving them both an open seer and a vig.

    All vigs were expressed via wite-out; that was just to confuse you.

    Role PMs

    CUNT
    Well, you would have been Telephone – but you’re not, that’s just what you tell everyone you are.

    You are cunt, of the profane.

    Now you see, I’ve lied to you, and everyone, in the game – you are NOT the bad guys. Far from it. As Mark Twain said: “Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.” And you can’t say that it’s not really, very cathartic.

    The bad guys are those seeking to censor and destroy language – although they think they’re doing good.

    So with your other friends in the “BIG 3”: fuck and shit (maximus and abotkin) you are not seeking to search, or destroy, you are merely seeking to survive.

    Every day the profane may send in a target for corruption. Unless the target is a special they will then come round to your way of thinking. They will not be told who YOU are, or whether you are good, bad, etc, they will merely receive the following pm:

    ‘Dear _____, you are now corrupted.

    You had a think about it, and you’ve realised that the world can’t really live without profanity. People would show their anger in other, more inappropriate an violent means. Thus, you now support the use of prpfanity.

    To all intents and purposes you will still appear to be good old ______ [normal word], but in reality you are now ______ [profanity].

    Your win condition has also been changed – you must now just survive until the end of the game – you of course no longer wish to wite-out the profane.

    If you are seered, vig’d or voted off you will show up in your new form.

    You have NOT been converted to the profanity team, you just are a profanity yourself. Your powers/abilities, etc, have not changed, you are still part of the village, and you must still vote every day.’

    You may NOT invite any of the corrupted to proboards, etc – they have not been converted to yourside, they have just been corrupted into being a profanity. To use the corruption power, send me a target by pm, and the profanity that you would like to change them to. Currently, all profanities other than cunt, fuck and shit are completely open. You may not reuse a profanity name. You may change your target at any point up to vote close.

    You win when the number of the remaining Big 3, plus the number of corrupted, is equal to, or greater than, the other unaffiliated players.

    I realise that this is silly and complicated, so await for your questions about clarifications.


    FUCK
    Well, you would have been Honey – but you’re not, that’s just what you tell everyone you are.

    You are fuck, of the profane.

    Now you see, I’ve lied to you, and everyone, in the game – you are NOT the bad guys. Far from it. As Mark Twain said: “Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.” And you can’t say that it’s not really, very cathartic.

    Villager
    You are [WORD]

    Just [WORD]

    You are just an ordinary word going about your business. Your quest, with the other ordinary words, is to survive, and remove the scourge of the profanities. Every day you will vote for a book-burning, by targeting another player. The winner of the vote will be burned, and removed from the dictionary of life forever.

    DICTIONARY
    Not only are you dictionary, but you are DICTIONARY – collector of words.

    In your ever-continuing all-consuming thirst for words and knowledge, every day you target someone to fully research, so that you can, if you want, add them to your database.

    PM me your target every day, and I will tell unto you which word they truly are. I will absolutely guarantee that in this game there are NO thralls, all seer results will be 100% accurate at the time I send them to you.

    Your win condition is to wipe out those horrid, horrid nasty profane words.

    WITE-OUT
    Not only are you wite-out, you are WITE-OUT, destroyer of words.

    You have the power to cloak, and destroy a words, covering them in glorious white, as if they had never existed.

    PM me your target every day and it will be as if they never existed.

    Your win condition is to wipe out those horrid, horrid nasty profane words.


    BOOK-COVER
    Not only are you book-cover, you are BOOK-COVER, protector of words.

    You have the power to cover a word in cellophane, protecting them from all of those attacks that may seek to destroy, or change, them. Also, if anyone attempts to change that word, they are protected thanks to your easy, wipe clean, surface. The only problem is, you’re really quite flammable – you can’t protect from a book-burning.

    Every day send me in your target and that person will be protected from the attacks of the insidious.

    Your win condition is to wipe out those horrid, horrid nasty profane words.


    Lastly, the ‘convert’ pm was changed slightly over time to cover reasonable clarifications from the previously converted, here’s the final draft:
    Dear Card, you are now corrupted.

    You had a think about it, and you’ve realised that the world can’t really live without profanity. People would show their anger in other, more inappropriate an violent means. Thus, you now support the use of profanity.

    To all intents and purposes you will still appear to be good old Card, but in reality you are now BITCH.

    Your win condition has also been changed – you must now just survive until the end of the game – you of course no longer wish to wite-out the profane.

    If you are seered, vig’d or voted off you will now show up in your new form.

    The BIG 3, who will probably be in touch, have discovered various powers associated with the use of their names. If YOUR new word is used in the thread, it does not confer any advantages. Likewise, if a profane character uses profane language, this confers no advatnage. This will sound all very vague, but I'm sure the other profanities will be in touch to discuss things further.

    Am happy to take any and all questions/clarifications

    It was an interesting game with some clever mechanics, Micro, and thanks for hosting!

    I would agree though that the convertee PM should perhaps have been clarified somewhat. The tone of it (such as the use of 'other profanities') made it sound, at least to me, as if it was a straight conversion.
